"this is the captain of a u.s. navy ship. i say, again, divert your course." the canadian reply, "no, i say, again, you divert your course." then the u.s. ship says, "this is the aircraft carrier u.s.s. coral sea. we are a large warship of the united states navy. divert your course now." the canadian reply, "this is a lighthouse. your call." the u.s. navy has this whole thing posted on their website as a way of essentially saying this is a joke radio transmission.

americans, and it should remind us why the u.s. went to war in afghanistan in the first place, and what's at stake for u.s. national security interests, and what could happen if we withdraw troops to quickly. unfortunately, american popular support for the war has dipped considerably. some of the latest polling shows it is below 20%. i think this is because of the western media bias for reporting on violence and bad news coming out of the country, but i think it's also the result of president karzai and his continuous criticism of american policies there despite the massive amount of assistance in blood and treasure the u.s. has spent there, but the white house has been reluctant to talk about the war and really spell out for the american people what is at stake, so i think all of these combined have led to the dismal view about afghanistan. the point is with these elections we have an opportunity to reframe the debate, and we can focus on what is right about the u.s. mission in afghanistan and what has been accomplished. i think this is a good time for the white house to be clear that
